The rabbinical head of Britain’s Reform movement criticized the handling of last week’s gay pride event in Jerusalem and the inclusion of Avigdor Lieberman in Israel’s coalition. The Jewish Chronicle reported that in a letter to the Israeli Ambassador to the U.K., Zvi Heifetz, Rabbi Tony Bayfield cited violent protests by the fervently Orthodox against the march and Lieberman’s views on Arabs, which include separating Israel’s Arab and Jewish populations.
